Congratulations from a Canuck in Nippon. May yours serve you as well as mine does me. Don't recommend using it as a bong, though, eh?!

Same here. I got my Tibook a week ago, my first Mac, and am having a ball. Still very confused as to where to find things, and even the basics take me an age, but I just like it and at this moment am prepared to forgive it it's shortcomings as "idiosynchrasies".
I can feel a 17inch looming in the future.

I'm getting a 15" On Saturday. I think now that it's going to be a while before the AL 15" comes out, and I'm going through withdraw without my iBook around any longer!

Yeah, got my 15" SD a couple of weeks ago and it is awesome. I think I am hooked as I am already lusting after other apple kit (20" CD and iPod). I just wish Apple would make a decent wheelmouse!

Yep..you're right about the Apple mouse
But logitech or kensington make very good mice. I got the PocketMouse pro wireless for my tibook and it matches perfectly with mi PB...

I got my TiBook 2 weeks ago and still love it. Its not too big, not too small, but just right. Being that the Tibook has been around for a couple of years, looks like Apple really did a good job with its revisions over the years. I maxed out the ram to 1gb so I don't have to deal with any memory issues when running Photoshop or other applications. I'm sure, in time, I would upgrade to the new 17"Albook but I think I'll let Apple perfect that model over the next 1-2 years. By then, the 17" Albook should go down in price and the new 15"Albooks should be in the market. Who knows...Apple is full of surprises.

I'm a switcher too!

I got a great deal off Ebay for a brand new 1ghz TiBook.

I'll tell ya, I can't wait the next week or so for it to arrive.

I'd also like to thank everyone for all the advice I've used while lurking on these boards.

One quick question I do have is, how stable is OpenOffice in OSX? Anyone have any problems?

I'm a happy owner of a 15" 1GHz Powerbook too... and I'm even more happy that I finally got through to a PC-friend of mine. He got his new PowerBook wednesday and now I'm prepared to answer all his questions!

I even bothered to burn him a DVD with files downloaded from the Internet that's useful for him (he's on a modem) and I really crammed that disk with goodies for him. Lots of wonderful tools and games to get him started.

I'm not sure what's more fun, to have a new computer myself or having a friend convert to Mac.

Me too! First PowerBook: 12-inch / 640MB

I had said, no laptop for me unless it can run Cubase, drive my external monitor at over [email protected], play Warcraft III and program with GCC + make + Perl, all for under $3500 CDN.

Well, that laptop finally came along, with lots more goodies to boot.

Ordered it Jan 20, 2003.

I switched (to a PowerMac) in early 2002 and am never going back. iLife rocks!
